RETURN TO NATURE
A man and a bear walked side-by-side through the woods at dusk.
"Isn't it gorgeous?" said the man to the bear, spreading his arms and taking in the myriad sights and smells. "The birds singing in the trees, the frogs croaking, the crickets chirping, the way the sunlight filters through the branches! Nature is truly a wondrous thing. Don't you agree?"
"While I admire your enthusiasm, aesthetics don't mean much to me, " said the bear. "Nature may be wondrous, but she can be cruel and savage. Also, she has a wicked sense of humor, and you would do well to remember that."
The bear then devoured the man and continued on his way.
